Anna voted Leave in 2016, but she is a Remainer Now. She recently wrote to Gloria De Piero after the Labour MP asked on live TV to hear from more regretful Leavers so she could come out for a People’s Vote.

Dear Gloria,

I recently watched your on the Jeremy Vine Show saying you would change your mind on people’s vote if more people tell you.

My Name is Anna Lowery. I voted Leave in 2016. Here’s why:

The Sun:

We urge our readers to beLEAVE in Britain and vote to quit the EU on June 23
THIS is our last chance to remove ourselves from the undemocratic Brussels machine ... and it’s time to take it

The Daily Mail:

Brexit campaigner Michael Gove: It is time to tell Brussels elite ’...
Prominent Brexit campaigner Michael Gove has issued a call to British voters to send a message to the “arrogant” Brussels elite: “You’re fired. We’re taking ...

Daily Express:

Your country needs YOU: Vote Leave today to make Britain even greater
THE moment of destiny has finally arrived.

Now the Leave Team:

EU trade deal ‘easiest in human history’
Liam Fox says the UK’s rules and laws are already the same as the European Union’s
Video evidence emerges of Nigel Farage pledging EU millions for NHS after denial
The Ukip leader distanced himself from the pledge just hours after EU referendum results became known

As you can see it’s a lot of people saying Leave is going to be great but in reality it is not.

I also will admit to you that at the time my ex-boyfriend was a Leaver and probably still is a Leaver. He also had influence on my decision.

The morning after when Leave ‘won’ and Farage lied on GMB saying he never said anything, it was all Leave not him. But here I sent you the video. You can clearly see he lied. After that I just thought, ‘well, they all lie, and still are lying’.

I met my current boyfriend who I have been with since. He’s a Remainer. But instead of the propaganda lies, he just showed me facts and the science.

From then on, I only look at facts and understand how important another vote is.
